Miss out on some of the best action/horror experiences this generation? Both Alan Wake adventures are on big time sale on Steam right now.
Until Monday the 23rd, the original Alan Wake (with all the DLC!) and the (more action-y sequel) Alan Wake’s American nightmare will be half the usual price on the service. And if you buy both games together, you’ll nab ’em for the low, low discount price of $19.99 USD.
Alan Wake is a psychological action thriller pitting one man against a dark world existing somewhere between fantasy and reality. When the wife of best-selling writer Alan Wake disappears on their vacation, his search turns up pages from a thriller he doesn’t even remember writing. A dark presence stalks the small town of Bright Falls, pushing Wake to the brink of sanity in his fight to unravel the mystery and save his love. The PC version comes complete with the main game and both follow-up DLC special episodes: The Signal and The Writer.
Alan Wake’s American Nightmare is a standalone pulp action adventure that follows Wake to ‘Night Springs’, a twisted, horrifying alternate reality where fiction has become real. Wake must leap into action and pursue his evil doppelganger, Mr. Scratch, across the Arizona mesa towards the town of Night Springs. Scratch, a supernatural serial killer, has his evil plans set on Wake’s wife, Alice. Wake must learn to control reality itself and unravel the secret to Mr. Scratch’s demise while using the power of light to put an end to the darkness. Gamers can also dive into the “Fight till Dawn” arcade mode, which tasks players with surviving a full night of brutal onslaughts while racking up their score. The PC versions of both titles have been enhanced with stunning high-resolution graphics, added features and customizable controls.
